Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

anger management...

"I feel pretty, oh so pretty..."

I think I just lost an American epal (that's the e equivalent of a penpal.) And while I am very sad at her reaction, I refuse to take responsibility for it.

It's all about anger and hate. I differentiate between the two, but it seems that she does not. So I'm accused of hate because I'm angry.

I give up...

Americans have trouble with that, Gerry. Differentiating between anger and hate. It's a good thing that our gun laws are so strict here (oh, never mind... strike that!). Anger and hate are both cherished American qualities to many here. It's sad, but it's true and it certainly doesn't apply to all Americans. It's never been more evident than in the last four Bush years. God, the civilized world needs to be praying (if that works for you) that Kerry can win in November and salvage some sanity here and some dignity around the world. Honestly, pal, it's getting pretty bad here.

My anger was off the scale so I guess, in all fairness, it might have translated as hatred.

About Kerry,do you think America will stop playing the global take-over merchant and bully?

As I understanding neither the Republicans or the Democrats have any great track-record for non-interention or being anti American-dominated globalisation.

If nothing else, you have a subtle individual who will do his best to at least cooperate with the rest of the world vs. a potential Hitler. Yes, Gerry... it will make a difference. I don't want to have to raise my hand in a manditory salute while chanting "Hail Bush!"

Well, Jeff, let's hope you have a better election outcome than the one we had here. Good luck.

Diane here, Gerry -- the American who can't distinguish anger from hate. Naw, not true, but I bet you run into that a lot. I respect your anger, admire your passion, and believe the anger is totally justified. But I can't see a way through it to be related to as anything but an ugly American. My own humanity is lost here, and I feel lumped together with every American politican and government official whoever made a mistake. I've taken to the streets, Jerry, you know that. I've put my body on the line (and you know how far they went with me, Gerry), but I am still the enemy for you. It just feels like there is no room for you to see past my nationality to my humanity. There is no way I can do anything but get beat up talking to you because you can't get past where I was born.

That's all.

Diane again -- But I AM stupid sometimes -- haven't worked my way through the process to have an identity on your blog yet!

It wasn't personal, Diane. I was directing my rant at
Americans in general and I did say that you ought not take it personal. It's like when an American cruise missile hits an Iraqi house and America says "don't take it personally, it was just collateral damage, we didn't mean it, we apologise." The friends and relations of the dead and those maimed still take it personally. I guess words are like missiles sometimes and I should learn to shut up.

To gat away from the "anonymous" monster, you need to follow the instructions on how to creat a Blogger profile for yourself.
